Back Blast – Minuteman @ The Patriot – Captain Crunchberry Q – 8.2.2021

Weather: Hovering right at 60. Can’t ask for better weather in early August PAX: Holy Roller, Ruby, Jolly Rancher, Virginia Slim, Yankovic, Boss Hog, and myself. I have been trying to headlock a buddy that lives within minutes of The Patriot. I thought today was the day he was going to show. He didn’t. COP:Continue reading “Back Blast – Minuteman @ The Patriot – Captain Crunchberry Q – 8.2.2021”

Backblast – Moonshiner @ The Boondocks – Captain Crunchberry Q – 06.03.2021

Today’s weinke was inspired by Ali. The quote captioned above is the most perfect a summation of this morning. In a little over a week, I will have been doing this thing called F3 for 2 years. The physical workout portion of the morning has always been the easiest part. The suffering comes in theContinue reading “Backblast – Moonshiner @ The Boondocks – Captain Crunchberry Q – 06.03.2021”

Backblast – Moonshiner @ The Boondock – Captain Crunchberry Q – 05.06.2021

The weather this morning was a little cooler than yesterday. But the wind wasn’t there today, so if felt like 10 degrees warmer. But in reality, it was 42 degrees on this May morning where Flex Seal, Boss Hog (R), Swag, Lambeau, Bulletin (R), Honey Do, and myself joined up to count to 5.

BackBlast – 5.5.2021 – The Escalator – Captain Crunchberry Q

Happy Cinco de Mayo! A real special holiday. You know, a relatively insignificant holiday in Mexico (according to The History Channel), but celebrated by just about anyone over the age of 21, with a bar or Mexican restaurant within a stones throw. Generally speaking, I don’t need a reason to have a drink or two.Continue reading “BackBlast – 5.5.2021 – The Escalator – Captain Crunchberry Q”

Preblast – The Abyss – 5/5/2021 – Captain Crunchberry Q

Ven a comenzar tu celebración del Cinco de Mayo conmigo en The Abyss. A través de algunas búsquedas en Google, estoy bastante seguro de que este es un día festivo creado para beber cerveza en los Estados Unidos. Así que lo usaremos para mejorar nuestro estado físico y, si ha llegado hasta aquí, tal vezContinue reading “Preblast – The Abyss – 5/5/2021 – Captain Crunchberry Q”

Backblast – The Motivator – Captain Crunchberry Q – 4.12.2021

For those that don’t like long Backblast: We did stuff, we got better. These PAX were in attendance: Pelican, Flip Flop, Uncle Sam, Mr. Hat, Tidwell, Kitty Litter, and Captain Crunchberry (QIC). For those along for the ride, here is the Paul Harvey version… (You know, the rest of the story…) Hello F3 Louisville, standContinue reading “Backblast – The Motivator – Captain Crunchberry Q – 4.12.2021”

Preblast – 4.12.2021 – The Motivator – Captain Crunchberry Q

0500, Monday. Nothing about that is something to look forward to. But, the thought of spending a little time with your fellow F3 Brothers, and leaving 45 minutes better than you were when you arrived, is a great start to the week. Come join me, leave the baggage (and coupon) at home. At The Abyss,Continue reading “Preblast – 4.12.2021 – The Motivator – Captain Crunchberry Q”

Backblast – Loco @ The Station – 12.8.2020 – Captain Crunchberry / Lucky Charms Co-Q – Breakfast of Champions

Weather: Cold, but dry. I didn’t look at the actual temperature when I got there, but I’m pretty sure the forecast was for 25 degrees. It was cold enough that Storm Trooper and Cartman claimed it was right at the threshold of whether they could attend or not. But, they both showed up, otherwise IContinue reading “Backblast – Loco @ The Station – 12.8.2020 – Captain Crunchberry / Lucky Charms Co-Q – Breakfast of Champions”

Pre-Blast – Breakfast of Champions -Loco @ The County – 12.8.2020 – Co-Q Mashup – Lucky Charms / Captain Crunchberry

Come start your day with a breakfast of champions tomorrow at The County. You will get to help settle the most heated debate in the breakfast world. Which is better, crunchy bacon (Lucky Charms’ choice) or chewy bacon (Captain Crunchberry’s choice.) Lace up your running shoes and bring your coupon. Better bring gloves too ifContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Breakfast of Champions -Loco @ The County – 12.8.2020 – Co-Q Mashup – Lucky Charms / Captain Crunchberry”

Backblast – Gladiator @ The Abyss – 11.20.2020 – Captain Cruncherry Q

When I signed up to Q this, I expected smaller numbers. The Abyss is like a fine wine. Or what I think a fine wine would be. I don’t really drink too much wine, and definitely don’t drink fine wine. It is hard to appreciate this AO, unless you have been there a few times.Continue reading “Backblast – Gladiator @ The Abyss – 11.20.2020 – Captain Cruncherry Q”

Preblast – Gladiator @ The Abyss – 11.20.2020 – Captain Crunchberry Q

I’m still putting the finishing touches on the weinke. It looks like temperatures warm up, it should be perfect conditions. Weinke Option #1 involves some moderate running with a headlamp, but does not require a coupon. Weinke Option #2 does require a coupon, but little running. Which will I choose? Play it safe, bring aContinue reading “Preblast – Gladiator @ The Abyss – 11.20.2020 – Captain Crunchberry Q”

Backblast – Gladiator @ The Abyss – Captain Cruchberry Q

Weather: Clear, dry, a chilly. Temperatures hovering in the mid 30’s. The numbers for today were a little light. A combination of reasons COVID precautions being one, but I don’t think that is the case with Jolly Rancher. I’m pretty sure Jolly Rancher fartsacked. There is still a chance he posted at The Garden, butContinue reading “Backblast – Gladiator @ The Abyss – Captain Cruchberry Q”

Preblast – The Gladiator @ The Abyss – 11-13-2020

6 minutes isn’t enough. You AB-solutely don’t want to miss this workout. The sky will be clear, the moon will nearing a new moon (when it is least visible), so it will be dark. The stars should be spectacular. So we will spend most of our time on our backs, looking up at the view.Continue reading “Preblast – The Gladiator @ The Abyss – 11-13-2020”

Backblast – Loco @ The County – 11.03.2020 – Captain Crunchberry Q

Dearly beloved… We gathered today to celebrate the right to choose. Some chose poorly and went to another AO. Specifically, Dauber. He left Pelican standing all alone. He picked up a late Q at the Boondocks. Since I gave him no prior knowledge that I planned to poke fun at him (and Pelican) I won’tContinue reading “Backblast – Loco @ The County – 11.03.2020 – Captain Crunchberry Q”

Preblast – 11.03.2020 – Loco @ The County – Captain Crunchberry Q

Tomorrow at The Loco we will celebrate the right to choose. Some decisions are with you for days or months, and a few decisions last a lifetime. Your decision to show up will set you back about 45 minutes. Your decision to vote could affect you for the next 4 years. No coupons needed. GlovesContinue reading “Preblast – 11.03.2020 – Loco @ The County – Captain Crunchberry Q”

Pre-Blast – Inferno @ The Station – GHOST Q – 10.29.2020

From the desk of The Ghost Q: It’s Ghost Q week but don’t be scared or spooked by that….or the 100% chance of rain….or the 100% chance of a total beatdown. Bring a coupon and be ready to get after it. This will be an AMRAP style workout that push even the most WICKED PAXContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Inferno @ The Station – GHOST Q – 10.29.2020”

Backblast – The Motivator – 10.19.2020 – Captain Crunchberry Q

Weather: Mid 50’s, wet pavement, but no rain. Which was a sigh of relief. I’m not sure I’m mentally prepared for mild temperatures with rain. I know, you only get wet once. But man it sucks at the beginning. PAX: Flip Flop, Harbaugh, Uncle Sam, Mr. Hat, Jolly Rancher, Lucky Charms, Tidwell, and Captain CrunchberryContinue reading “Backblast – The Motivator – 10.19.2020 – Captain Crunchberry Q”

10.16.2020 – Back Blast – Pleasantville – Captain Crunchberry Q

Weather: Low 40s, with a slight chill to start things off. I was shocked as I arrived with Tidwell in tow. We had to park a fair distance away from the normal meeting location. I felt like I was going to a sporting event. You know, where you park far away, so you can avoidContinue reading “10.16.2020 – Back Blast – Pleasantville – Captain Crunchberry Q”

Backblast – 10.08.2020 – Inferno @ The Station – Captain Crunchberry Q School

Weather – Mary Freakin’ Poppins. Practically perfect in every way. Mid 50’s, dry, no fog, little to no dew. (Although we never left the pavement, so that last part might be a lie. PAX:  As site Q, I keep my own data. The average numbers for The Station is 6. With the occasional spike whenContinue reading “Backblast – 10.08.2020 – Inferno @ The Station – Captain Crunchberry Q School”

This week at The Station we will work on the little things. Little things with big impact. BringContinue reading “Preblast – Inferno @ The Station – 10.8.2020 -Captain Crunchberry Q School”
